Tiny Food Landscapes

I totally love the art genre where small figures are placed on everyday objects (such as dog poo) and photographs taken of their interaction - it’s a small small world.

These food landscapes from Pierre Javelle & Akiko Ida are fabulous. I particularly like the detail of the workers peering inside the cream cake, astronauts walking across the surface of the creme brulee and, best of all, someone mowing a kiwi. After all, who hasn’t dreamt of diving into thick chocolate mousse?

I think there work is so strong due to the evident humour in their approach. Javelle & Ida categorize their work into categories such as sport and delicacies with skaters on a flan dish, football players on eggs and soldiers in watercress all featured.
